Sunday 22 January - The Tour Down Under is to be decided on the final day of action. Starting in Unley and finishing on Mount Lofty, the route takes in an elevation gain of 3,131 metres.
The route climbs from the gun. After leaving from the inner-south suburb of Unley the riders and travel up the old freeway. This is still the neutral section, and it climbs all the way to the notorious Devil’s Elbow. That’s where the start flag waves.
After turning left on the Mount Lofty Summit Road the riders race four passes of a 25 kilometres loop through the Adelaide Hills, connecting Summertown, Uraidla, Carey Gully, Bridgewater, Aldgate, Stirling and Crafers. KOM points are available in the finish passage at kilometre 33.6 and at kilometre 85.3.
Mount Lofty begins just after moving through Aldgate. This way, the climb adds up to 7.6 kilometres, but according to the race officials the climb is only 1.3 kilometres long and averages 7.3%. If you start to count after Aldgate the average gradient falls to 3.3%. The steepest part – 13.3% – sits in the final kilometre.
The Tour Down Under never before finished at Mount Lofty.
Two intermediate sprints come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds each, while the first three riders one the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
